While I’ll always love our Healthy Morning Zucchini Bread, breakfast perfect, and our traditional forever favorite zucchini bread, this recipe is a bit different. Like a familiar friend with a tantalizing secret. And that would be, of course, hidden chocolate chunks.

And they are, rather divine.

Ingredients

2 medium zucchini, finely grated (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 shredded coconut
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chunks or chips

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9×5 inch bread pan.

Shred the zucchini and then spread evenly on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Cover with another layer of paper towels and let sit 10 minutes. Squeeze out any moisture in the zucchini and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oil, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla until combined. The stir in the shredded zucchini. Add the brown sugar, flour, coconut, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until just combined — be careful not to overmix. Fold in the chocolate chunks.

Transfer the batter into the prepared baking pan; bake for 50-60 minutes, or until center is set. Remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes or so before cutting into slices.
